A Long Journey on Feilai Peak

While touring Hangzhou is associated with the famous Lingyin Temple, or the just as famous West Lake, today I’ll take you to the Feilai Peak Buddhist Grottoes, a marvel of an experience. It took us 2 full hours to see it all, and hopefully this slideshow is representative of all there is to see.

It’s name in Chinese is, “@&*”, meaning something along the lines of a “peak coming from far”. Legend has it that the peak came from India. Very Buddhist, right? The carvings there date back to the tenth-to-fourteenth centuries.
